Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Boldly revealing the hidden lives of some of the United States most powerful policymakers, Outrage takes a comprehensive look at the harm they've inflicted on millions of Americans, and examines the media s complicity in keeping their secrets. Outrage probes deeply into the psychology of this double lifestyle, the ethics of outing closeted politicians, the double
standards that the media upholds in its coverage of the sex lives of gay public figures, and much more.

Amazon.com

Filmmaker Kirby Dick’s fine balance of documentary rigor and muckraking returns with Outrage, a blistering investigation into closeted gay politicians who push anti-gay legislation to hide their own sexual impulses. You might expect such a documentary to collapse in a heap of strident accusations, but though the hypocrisy is appalling--particularly when it squashed funding for AIDS research and contributed to thousands of deaths--Outrage skillfully avoids hysteria, finding humor and even compassion in its examination of the lives of Republican Senator Larry Craig, New York Mayor Ed Koch, and others. The documentary also explores other facets of the issue, including the abundance of gay journalists who help maintain the cloak of secrecy and the wives who, sometimes knowingly and sometimes in denial, provide the illusion of conventional heterosexual harmony. The testimonies of politicians who came out while in office, like Republican Rep. Jim Kolbe and Democratic Governor of New Jersey James McGreevey, is particularly moving and illustrates the complexity of the American political scene. Outrage is most damning of the Bush/Cheney administration, which used gay marriage as a hot-button issue to manipulate social conservatives. All in all, a compelling example of fervent but intelligent journalism, applied to what has become a core issue of this political moment. --Bret Fetzer

Apparently the previous reviewer didn't actually SEE the film which I do believe is a prerequisite to a good review. This film is an eye-opener, an in depth examination of the extent that closeted gay politicians (and there are many) will go to protect themselves. This protection takes the form of the most vehement method of defense, reaction-formation. The primary point of the film is to question the practice of outing closeted gay politicians who promote and protect their own careers at the expense of the rights of others. Larry Craig is seen as a rather pathetic figure who's accusations of gay encounters go as far back as the 1980's, long before his last bathroom fiasco. Also interviewed are politicians who have come out of the closet (or been forced out) explaining the freedom attained through honesty. Most interesting is information surrounding the current governor of Florida. The film is riveting from beginning to end. Illustrations of a Freudian slip by a Fox news reporter provide a moment of laughter, while the censoring of an Anderson Cooper (of all people) Bill Maher interview which omits Maher's naming of a gay politician gives question to the beltways conspiracy to protect right-wing gay politicians and their staff. You will be amazed and surprised at the disclosures this film has to offer! A must see. Watch for the Republican conservative who takes his gay "right hand man" all over the world for extended travel but makes sure their arrival is always one day apart.

This documentary really opened my eyes to what is happening in Washington DC. I had heard for years about a large number of closeted homosexuals within the Republican Party. When Larry Craig was arrested for soliciting toilet sex, it came as no surprise. But this documentary really shines a light on more of these hypocrites. Very well done and the facts are meticulously backed up. Must see!

It has been said; "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". Even worse, is when good men lie about who they are and work for the opposition!

Unfortunately it is unpopular in many circles to be homosexual. I understand that you may want to hide to further your career or your political agenda. But to actively work against yourself and your rights is masochistic. If nothing else, I think the movie Outrage will educate all of us as to how self-hatred is belittling to the individual and harmful to society at large.

I love a good documentary. This one is definitely good, and definitely worth seeing!

I'm not sure I liked the politics of this dvd. Sure some people were exposed for being queer when they exhibited politics that expressed an alternate point of view. I think the dvd needed more analysis of why people were the way they were. More exposure of the fear that keeps many of us in the closet. And even now its so safe in some countries but still a death sentence in others. Straight thinkers still think they have the right to decide if its ok to be queer or not. Maybe I need to make my own movie about this because it will always be about truth of who I am and nothing to do with choice. You can choose to be out or not, not queer or not.
Maybe too American in its views, I was disappointed but come from a country where we were the first in the world to let women vote. That may have been done for very dubious reasons at the time but started New Zealand on a very cool road of being able to be honest about who you were. The hyp of this movie sounded good but the content was not so good.

This is a must see for all Americans who think they know why many politicians vote against any policies pertaining to the Gay community, and it has nothing to do with God and the Bible. This documentary does a great job showing the hypocrisy, self loathing, and inherent evil in many of our politicians, most who appear to be Republican, although I am sure there are some democrats out there as well who have the same self hating issues.

There seems to be a lot of Gay closeted politicians holding office than you would never possibly imagine, many who have consistently voted against any policies that would prevent Gay people from discrimination. You should be "outraged."

Everyone's sex life is their own; it's no one's business what we do in our bedrooms, UNTIL some individuals (as our politicians do) decide to exercise their moral authority as though it was given to them by God.

It is disturbing to see how the people who lead our nation display duplicity every day. What good can we expect of people who can't be true to themselves?

It is very important to understand that this documentary does not present a compelling position for or against homosexuality. This documentary simply reveals the cheap games some politicians are playing to deceive their family and their people, while hiding the reality of their lives.

The saddest part for me was seeing the exwife of James McGreevy , the previous governor of New Jersey, who found out that her husband of many years and the father of her daughter was gay all along. How can we believe, as a nation, that somebody who can engage in such a selfish deception with his own family can work for the best interest of his nation?

It is time for people to stop following empty slogans and self appointed saints, it is time to think and this documentary will help!
